It doesn't matter if those girls were offering sex or Friendship, it only matters how Norman "interprets" what they said/did, and what he feels is a justifiable punishment for the gap between what really happened and what he thought happened.
Bingo. There's a touch of the surreal in how Norman interacts with his environment. It made me wonder how much was real and how much in his mind.
This is how I interpreted it as well. I think this was his perception of the introduction/car ride/party. I think it is possible we may see the girls' version of the events in the future...when the "sweet boy" begins to unravel.
